The annual Communion Breakfast at Dominican College was a very good start for Mother’s Day. Health & Welfare Chairman John Dillon did a great job, as always, coordinating this event. I thank John and all who helped to make the event a success.
May 15th was National Police Memorial Day in Washington, DC. It’s been a tough year for the law enforcement community and we all look forward to the day when no names are added to the wall.
Here in Rockland County, our fallen comrades were remembered at the annual Law Enforcement Memorial Service in New City, on Sunday, May 20th. We must never forget those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.
The General Membership Meeting this month is our big event. We will be presenting scholarships to college bound students. This meeting (at Casa Mia, on Route 303 in Blauvelt) usually fills up quickly, so I encourage everyone to arrive early.
Some discussions at the last few meetings about LEOSA (HR218) and NY Penal Law Article 400, have raised more questions than have been answered. These laws (and the NY SAFE Act) can be accessed for free on the internet and are essential reading for active and retired officers that opt to be armed – in this state (and especially out of this state). DON’T BE THE TEST CASE!!
REMEMBER TO THANK OUR VETERANS AND FIRST RESPONDERS
